Ban Milo Yiannopoulos from Campus, ‘Anti-Fascism ‘Advocates Tell Cal-Berkeley

, Spencer Irvine, Leave a comment

Apparently, being “anti-fascist” means that you want to ban free speech by a controversial public figure like Milo Yiannopoulos. Oh the irony:

One UC Berkeley group, named Berkeley Antifa, created a Facebook event dedicated to disrupting and cancelling Milo’s event. The initiative, titled “No Fascists on Campus: Shut Down Milo at UC Berkeley,” urges students to contact school administrators and encourage them to cancel Yiannopoulos’ appearance.

“Given the recent increase in fascist activity both on and around the UC Berkeley campus, we feel that the university’s willingness to provide a platform to Milo Yiannopoulos and his views is unacceptable, and we intend to shut this event down,” the group explains in the event description. “We are inviting all allies and the Berkeley community to join us in making UC Berkeley a fascist-free zone.”

    Fascists do not care for free speech – they use it only as an excuse to spread their toxic ideology.
    Fascists cannot be defeated in debate or open discourse – for they do not believe in reason.
    Fascists only believe in the use of force – whether physical, legal, or economic force.
    Fascists can only be defeated by force – it is morally imperative to never allow them to secure more power.
